Email I received from “Richard Campbell:”

I want you to patiently read this offer.

for security reasons please reply to:

My name is Mr.Richard Campbell. I am the Personal Assistant(PA) to the Head of African Banking in the World Bank. As the PA, I represent my Boss in the Account Monitoring Team of the Organization For Petroleum Exporting Countries – OPEC and it?s oil activities in the petroleum sector of African countries. I also represent my Boss constantly in OPEC meeting at Geneva on the auspices of the WorldBank.Through the sale of World Bank representatives allocated oil quota from OPEC and other activities which I cannot reveal for now, I have been able to make US$10.2million, which is currently deposited in a Security and Finance company.

I want you to assist me to claim this money as I cannot claim it directly because I am still a civil servant, and the code of conduct bureau forbids me to acquire such amount of money. Let me also inform you that the deposit with the Security and Finance Company was not done directly by me.

It is on this basis that I am contacting you for assistance.If you will be interested, the documents with which the fund is deposited will be changed to reflect you as the depositor and beneficiary so that you will be eligible to collect the fund on my behalf. I will give you 30% of the fund for this assistance.

I am aware of the International Monitoring of all large-scale financial movements after the September 11th 2001 terrorist attack on America and to avoid any state offinancial investigation, all legal documents will be obtained and relevant clearance will be classified.

Kindly responds to my proposal through this my private email:

You should also provide me with your private telephone and fax numbers for easier communication. Expecting your response. Best regards,

Mr.Richard Campbell .


My reply:

This time I forward it to his ISP (whose address is attached to the bottom of the email), as well as adding this comment in a reply to him:

Okay Richard, or whoever you are, this message has been forwarded (the second one I received) and will now be posted on several public web sites. Enjoy the spam!
